Hermes love

May 9th, 2014

There are some facts in life;  the sky is blue,  taxes are inevitable,  and all mothers love Hermes scarves. And we just happen to have recently received 5 beautiful, never worn, Hermes silk twill scarves all dating from the early 1980′s. Coincidence? We think not. Consider it the universe’s (or our) way of giving you a hint for this mother’s day. Please contact us for more info.
